Every year, one day each year, we greet this special day, fall-back day.
Leaves are graciously changing color and drifting back down to earth to refresh till next spring.
I wonder….IF I could fall back, what would I do differently? Ever wonder about that? I’m sure you do. Today, when I woke, I felt refreshed and renewed. Yesterday gone, but did I do anything to prompt a better today, a better year? Yes!
During these fall-back days I ponder. Did I help this child too much or not enough? What about my other babies, did I do too much or too little? I’ll never really know, but I feel I’ve helped one and all my four babies, now grown adults, but always my babies to my fullest extent each day, each year!
At present I’m living with my youngest daughter Ashley and her fiance Doug. Yesterday, I unpacked only some of my items as this change of pace is the beginning of another new page in my life’s journey, soon to relocate and soar further! A new beginning that is changing the way I view items. A refreshing cleanse that is similar to the estate sales I handle. Yes, indeed it’s very similar.
Estate sales are a cleansing of a loved ones items. A letting go. Remembering of course, all the sweet and perhaps not-so-sweet memories of the one that left this life. This I do on a regular basis while wondering why do I need this or that? I must cleanse more.
This recent move encouraged me to gift items away and or throw out items that no longer suited my needs. Less is always more.
What a cleansing this has been for me! I’m now devoted to Self to keep it simple and move through these seasoned years with less baggage and more freedom of movement.
Within this free movement, the pact with Self is growing stronger. I’ve done my due diligence, working, raising my babies mostly alone. A course I’ve chosen without any remorse.
Now, all the books that have flown from this mind, out these fingertips and into my sixty-six journals to date, are bursting to bring forth their fruits.
Recently, I traveled the high seas seeking knowledge via an Alaskan authors cruise. There I learned a host of new knowledge and an invite to submit my Estate Sales Made Easy book for publication. This thrill, along with my recent cleansing of things has encouraged me to go as far as I can within the quest of writing.
Fall back, is just a note on the calendar along with all those what-if’s.
Cleanse my estate!
Raise higher and move forward!
Yes….another much more powerful note on the calendar.
